Section-B
Q2) Find the air fuel ratio of four stroke, single-cylinder, air cooled engine with
fuel consumption. Time for l0cc as 20.4sand air consumption time for 0.1m3
as 16.3s. the load is 17kg at the speed of 3000rpm. Find also brake specific
fuel consumption in g/k wh and brake thermal efficiency. Assume the density
of air as I .1 .175 g/m3 and specific gravity of fuel to be 0.7. The lower heating
value of fuel is 43MJ/kg and dynamometer constant is 5000.
3) Free air of 30 m3/min is compressed from 101.3kPa to 2.23 bar in roots
blower. Determine the power required and isentropic efficiency.
4) The effective jet exit velocity from jet engine is 2700m/s- The forward flight
velocity is 1350m/s and the air flow rate is 78.6kgis. Calculate a) thrust
b) thrust power c) propulsive efficiency'
5) What is rocket propulsion? Compare the working of liquid and solid propellant
rockets.
Q6) Why non-dimensional parameters are used to predict the performance
characteristics of compressor? Derive these parameters from the concept
of dimensional analysis.

Section - C
7) A centrifugal compressor has to deliver 6kg/s of air with pressure ratio of
4: I at 175OO rpm. Initial conditions are static air at 1 bar and 15˚C. Assuming
an adiabatic efficiency of 78%, ratio of whirl speed to tip speed 0.94 and
neglecting all other losses, calculate the tip speed, diameter and rise in total
pressure. Also, determine the external diameter of eye for which the internal
diameter is 12cm and the axial velocity at inlet is 150m/sec. Assume

cp=1 .005kJ/kgK and  =1.4
